Gabb Music: The Best Music App for Kids
It’s 2022 and there haven’t been any highly rated music apps for kids. Until now.
Here are a few pieces of research that make music’s impact clear:
- Children typically listen to 2.5 hours of music a day.
- Music can relieve tension and boredom.
- Music helps adolescents deal with loneliness and controls mood, and can help kids in their process of identity formation.
- Music provides kids a way to achieve group identity.
- Studies show a correlation between listening to explicit content, like lyrics glorifying violence or sexual promiscuity, and similar behaviors in adolescents.
This puts parents in a tricky position–we want our kids to gain all the positives music can offer, without exposing them to all the negatives it can also provide.
Gabb saw a need, so they launched Gabb Music.
Kid-Friendly Music Apps
If you’ve searched Google Play or the Apple app store, you may have come across apps like Baby Mozart or Sesame Street Makes Music.
These apps are geared toward teaching kids about music, how to make music, or are games that use classic tunes like nursery rhymes. These aren’t helpful if you want an app that lets your kids play music they want to listen to.
Prior to Gabb Music, the best options for kid-safe music streaming were “kid versions” of apps that were obviously made for adults.
What this typically resulted in was one of two things: 1) basic parental controls that can be toggled on within the adult app, but that do a poor job of properly protecting your kids, or 2) a watered-down listening experience for your kids that offers them kid-sung covers of hit songs and nursery rhymes that they–especially teens–are not interested in.
Gabb Music is The Largest Kid-Friendly Music Library in the World
Gabb Music, the biggest kid-friendly music app library, is a unique music streaming app built especially for kids and teens. It was designed to give them access to millions of songs from all genres and eras, but without the risk of exposure to inappropriate content.
Using a first-of-its-kind process, Gabb Music scans millions of songs using industry-leading tools. LyricFind’s state-of-the-art solution LyricIQ, along with Gabb’s own proprietary technology and human review, Gabb curates the world’s safest music catalog for kids and teens.
It doesn’t just bleep out explicit lyrics or blur videos, it removes offensive songs entirely and doesn’t allow music videos at all. It offers your family a curated library of clean music.
This way you don’t have to stress about inappropriate content slipping through the parental controls that were added to adult streaming apps as an afterthought.
It’s music streaming with the peace of mind parents are looking for. And the library of music kids are looking for.
Our music curation team is constantly updating and adding custom, clean mixes so your kids can discover new music and enjoy old classics, without the fear of stumbling across something they shouldn’t. These mixes include genre-specific collections like “Alternative,” “Pop Punk,” or “Reggae” as well as mixes based on mood, activity, holidays, decades, and more.
